Sonos One review

 

Are Sonos and Alexa a match made in heaven?

Full-bodied, rich sound ; Combines best of Alexa and Sonos ; Plays music while Alexa is muted

Google Assistant is MIA until 2018

Sonos’ debut Alexa speaker is a cleanly designed, feature-rich and great-sounding device that brings together the best of both ecosystems. You’ve got the ever-improving Alexa on the one hand, and on the other you’ve got Sonos with its own multi-room...

Sonos One review

 

Ever since the release of the original Amazon Echo , the smart speaker has been more smart than speaker. Being able to ask Alexa -- or, on Home speakers, Google -- for a weather report or a timer is great, but the number one use for these speakers for...

The Sonos One integrates full-fledged Alexa voice control, just like an Amazon Echo speaker but with better sound quality. It offers most of Alexa's smart home controls and its far-field microphone performs similarly to an Echo. The Sonos One works...

The One costs twice as much as the new Echo. It cannot form a stereo pair with an existing Sonos Play:1. Google Assistant and AirPlay 2 support won't arrive until 2018. It doesn't work how you'd expect if you have an Echo within earshot. There's no...

The Alexa-powered Sonos One is the first smart speaker that actually sounds good with music -- and even more new features will be coming to it in the months ahead.

Sonos One review: Smart, stylish and great-sounding – Alexa has found her home

 

Sonos' great-sounding multi-room speaker meets Amazon's Alexa, and they're set to be best friends

Great sound quality ; Easy to use ; Amazon Alexa support; Google Assistant coming in 2018

Won't pair with Play:1 ; No speaker mount options

The real clincher here, however, is that the One isn’t tied to any one smart assistant. So, regardless of whether you prefer Amazon or Google’s way of doing things – or potentially want the best bits of both – the Sonos One will ensure that great...

Sonos One

 

Supporting both Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, the Sonos One is the best-sounding and most feature-packed smart speaker we've tested to date.

Great sound ; Small and convenient ; Proper Alexa integration ; Supports Google Assistant (in 2018)

Alexa not fully compatible with Spotify at launch

One smart speaker to rule them all.

Sonos One review

 

A Sonos Play:1 with Amazon Alexa built-in? Sounds like a winning combination.

Stylish and unobtrusive ; Solid, sophisticated sound ; Expandable Sonos range ; Alexa well integrated

Lacks full Alexa control ; Still no hi-res audio ; Buggy beta software

Essentially, the One is a Play:1 with Alexa built in, and that’s a fine combination in our book

Sonos One review

 

Sonos meets Alexa in a mash-up you'll (mostly) love

Audio sounds great ; Lovely design ; Easy to use setup and app

Alexa doesn’t fully work right now ; No Spotify integration

A brilliant wireless speaker that’s occasionally scatterbrained

Sonos One and Alexa is an audio marriage made in heaven

 

Sonos One isn't perfect, but it gets the smart speaker basics right and adds that incredible sound.

Integrates with existing Sonos system ; Includes Amazon Alexa ; Amazing sound

Alexa setup is not nearly as easy as it should be ; A tiny bit buggy

If you already have a Sonos sound system, the Sonos One is the right smart speaker upgrade for you.
